I thought this was interesting to read, see link below for article, cheers all. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-52199185 "Fifty million pints - give or take. That's the amount of beer expected to go unused in barrels if pubs remain closed into the summer because of coronavirus" "Mr Stainer estimates the UK's 39,000 pubs have, on average, 15 barrels in their cellar at any given time. Most are kegs containing 11 gallons (88 pints) each - although many real ales come in nine-gallon (72-pint) casks. The best-before dates on pasteurised beer - including most lagers - are usually three to four months after delivery." "Supermarket alcohol sales increased by more than a fifth last month as pubs - along with cafes and restaurants - closed on 20 March" "Many breweries and distributors have offered to take back barrels at no charge once the lockdown is over, taking some of the financial pressure off landlords."
